Where the Cloud Touches Down: Simplifying Data Center Infrastructure Management

Thursday, July 25, 2013
10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET

In most data centers, DCIM rests on a shaky foundation of manual record keeping and scattered documentation. OpManager replaces data center documentation with a single repository for data, QRCodes for asset tracking, accurate 3D mapping of asset locations, and a configuration management database (CMDB). In this webcast, sponsored by ManageEngine, you will see how a real-world datacenter mapping stored in racktables gets imported into OpManager, which then provides a 3D visualization of where assets actually are. You'll also see how the QR Code generator helps you make the link between real assets and the monitoring world, and how the layered CMDB provides a single point of view for all your configuration data.

Broadcom Enables Programmable 100-GbE Switches

April 25, 2012 09:00 AM
With Internet back-haul switches being asked to handle exponentially more traffic, most service provider and Internet back-haul networks are going to completely skip over the 40 GbE step and go straight to 100 GbE. Broadcom has introduced a new line of switch processors that can be reprogrammed to add new functionality to the switch and support new protocols as they come along.

Next-Gen Networking Drives IT Budgets

March 20, 2012 10:10 AM
Vice President Joe Biden once said, "Don't tell me your values, show me your budget and I'll tell you your values." If the vice president saw the enterprise IT spending budgets, he would rightly conclude that they place an increasingly higher value on their networks as the critical circulation system for all of their IT assets. As demands are placed on networks to handle more video traffic, migrate to 10GbE connectivity, connect mobile and wireless devices, and handle the increase in data traffic brought about by virtualization, companies are investing significantly in their networks in 2012.

Is Your Network "Cloud Ready"?

October 17, 2011 09:45 AM
I am as tired of the whole "cloud" blitz as you are. But I can assure you that someone will ask you if your network is cloud-ready at some point this year. It is easy to just say "yes," but is that the truth? What does being cloud-ready mean? That depends. Do you plan on being the cloud, using the cloud or both? Let's leave being the cloud alone for now and talk about using the cloud. Is your network ready to use the cloud? Here are some steps you need to take before you say yes.
